Earlier,I had read about the Queensland (Australia) Netball controlling body banning the consumption of oranges during the breaks on Glenn Cardwell's blog.The theory being that oranges are acidic and could erode teeth enamel as there isn't enough saliva when exercising to wash the acid away.The solution he had mentioned was simple-drink water after eating the orange!
Now,what does one do when using a sports drink to quench your thirst and replace the electrolytes lost by sweating?According to the report:
- Don't sip the drink throughout the day,
- Try using a straw,
- Drink plenty of water to flush the mouth.
